Metamorphosis is the third compilation album of The Rolling Stones music released by former manager Allen Klein's ABKCO Records (who usurped control of the band's Decca/London material in 1970) after the band's departure from Decca and Klein. Released in 1975, Metamorphosis centres on outtakes and alternate versions of well-known songs recorded from 1964 to 1970.
Unreleased album planned as follow-up to Hot Rocks (1972). The project was cancelled due to disagreements between Andrew Oldham and Allen Klein about the eclectic track selection; witch included controversial songs such as "Andrews Blues" and "Pay Your Dues" (alternate version to "Street Fighting Man"). It was replaced with the more conservative double album "More Hot Rocks". Album was produced by Andrew Oldham.
As the sound on the Rolling Stones' legitimate CDs has been upgraded since 2001, so the bootleggers have followed along. No, this disc isn't an SACD hybrid, but it does offer some of the cleanest and loudest masters ever heard on the outtakes and unauthorized releases programmed onto it, with an audio quality of which any legitimate CD producer could be proud.
Necrophilia was indeed an unreleased album from 1972. Only a handful of acetates exist. 1972 Necrophilia- How this title was even granted a catalog number - AB4224 - is a mystery. Much like the legendary unreleased 1966 Stones LP Could You Walk On Water?, this set was to have featured 15 d tracks including alternate takes of Heart of Stone, Out of Time and Pay Your Dues, which was the original version of Street Fighting Man. Story has it that Andrew Loog Oldham and Allen Klein had a major disagreement on the track selection - more specifically on the extremely vulgar Andrew's Blues.
